Along with the joys of rainy season, seeps in the deep fear of frizzy hair, itchy scalp and a whole lot of hair loss. But we have a few tips to stop monsoon season from spoiling all the fun. Here are some tips on how to take care of your hair during monsoon season, to ensure less hair fall:
Style Smartly: Braiding your hair in this season not only protects it from the damage but also strengthens the hair follicles. The damp weather calls for the need to keep your mane dry at all times. Do not make the mistake of stepping out without an umbrella or the water proof hat which protects your hair during the season.
Oil Your Hair: Your grandmother and mother are right! Oil is the key to maintain strong hair. Oils provide the strength to the hair. Regular oiling can make your life simpler by ensuring good hair health. During monsoon as well you should oil your hair regularly. You can choose the right oil according to your hair type. Oils will prevent hair breakage. If you experience excess oil in your scalp, you must first wash your hair with a mild shampoo.
Hair Wash Routine: Wash your hair two to three times a week. It makes the hair scalp clean and conditioning further prevents fungal infection. Use an anti-frizz conditioner to de-tangle hair. You can use a comb to spread the conditioner and rinse it with cold water. This helps in providing a shine to your cuticles. Tying wet hair is a big no!
Do Not Brush Wet Hair: Wet hair is more prone to breakage. So wait till your hair dries a little and then go in softly with a wide tooth comb to detangle the hair.
Eat Right: Diet plays a crucial role in hair care and strengthens the hair follicles. To show off a healthy mane, include things like salmon, eggs, nuts, kidney beans and low fat dairy products which are high in iron and protein. Spinach, carrots and dark green veggies are excellent for healthy hair. Curd is high in vitamin D and prevents hair loss too.
Home Remedy: This one product often grows in your backyard: Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera gel can be used to treat dandruff, split ends and hair fall in this season as it restores the pH balance, reduces hair bacteria and relieves scalp itching.
Give your hair some extra attention and care this monsoon and say goodbye to all hair problems.
